this is a suggestion. The board was titled Hemingway and in February we attemped to discuss his short stories. Perhaps we could also move onto other books and the topic could be ongoing.
Some of the short stories we read here and questions that were posted here prompted me into reading the book Sun Also Rises.
It had the same abreviated austere style but at the same time beause the narration was longer the characters felt less like skeletons. Prior to reading it I heard it was a book about bull fights. I think that is a wrong assesment.
I'd be happy to discuss it (as well as other Hemingway's books) if anyone is around albeit in a slower pace. Hemingway's work for me is a prescription drug to be taken in small doses.
Among other topics the book zoomes on male friendship (different facets) plus a woman is brought on stage (or some women I'd say in order to include the side characters).

Is it wrong to have it here? Shakespeare has his own board, Hemingway could get one, too. Ernest is such an ongoing trauma; LOL
